This plan of part of Worcestershire uses different shades of green wash to distinguish woods, meadows, commons and parks. To the left of the manuscript, the narrow ridge of the Malvern Hills rises above the Severn and Tern Valleys. At the centre of the drawing is a north-south ridge formed of igneous rock, with wooded hills rising abruptly above the Tern Valley to the north. There are gentler and more sweeping slopes to the south-west, and clusters of conifers, limes, oaks and other parkland trees to the south.
